Visitor dies off Spitting Caves

A 21-year-old man died Saturday at the notoriously dangerous swim spot Spitting Caves.

Just before 3 p.m., paramedics said the Washington state man climbed down the rocks and got swept out by the high surf.

Lifeguards responded and eventually spotted the man's body submerged under the water.

The man's body was taken to Maunalua Bay by an Honolulu Fire Department search and rescue crew.

The victim's identity has not yet been released.
